1/2 cup softened butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2/3 cup chocolate chips
Mix together butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Add vanilla. On low speed add 1 cup flour, then the sweetened condensed milk and the last 1 cup of flour until blended. Add mini chocolate chips just until mixed.
Line 8X8 pan with parchment paper. Press the cookie dough into the pan, cover with saran wrap and refrigerate until firm - about 3 hours.
Topping - melt peanut butter and chocolate chips. Spread over the cookie dough. Chill until chocolate topping is firm - about an hour.
Now for cutting.
Having a bad day - don't bother, just grab a spoon, sit down on the couch and dig in.
A friend over for a good talk - cut it in half.
Trying to control yourself with the pan - cut into 16 pieces, take one out and hide the rest.
For a Christmas cookie platter - cut into 36 pieces.
